embarrassingly low that the obama administration is scrambling to wish her that this signature legislative achievements survive the obamacare disaster. i am lou dobbs. ♪ ♪ lou: evening, everyone. the obamacare website is a disaster. max baucus is calling for major changes in the program now in enrollment numbers for the first few days of the obamacare rollout are dramatically disappointing for the administration. the white house has been telling us for months that millions of americans have been visiting health care.gov, but the house oversight committee released internal notes from meetings that show only six people in total successfully enrolled on the first day enrolled. obamacare is a train wreck that has become a laughingstock as a result. as of today, the hite house pushed back expectations, taping them down and jay carney said that we don't expect those numbers to be very high and we never did. henry is at the white house with our report. reporter: embarrassed over the rollout of president obama signatureomestic achievement that only six people signed up on day one and was criti
to aljazeera america. >> for more than a month now, the obama administration has been saying how many millions of people have visited the health care website, but they have kept quiet about exactly how many have enrolled, insisting they do not have those numbers. >> new documents show the white house has a pretty good idea. >> even the president admits healthcare.gov has problems. >> the website is too slow, too many people have gotten stuck. >> just how many people have gotten stuck or how many ever enrolled are figures the obama administration has been denying the public for days now. >> you have no numbers on who's enrolled? you have no idea. >> we'll have those numbers available mid november. >> white house war room notes seem to show exact enrollment numbers for the first two days were off to a slow start. the notes say by the end of the second day, only 248 people had actually enrolled nationwide. a staggering statistic, considering that the site had nearly 5 million unique visitors in the first 24 hours. the chairman of the oversight committee requested and released the war room notes.
is way up in the polls, says he will get rid of it if elected. >> the obama administration is denying a report that advisers considered replacing vice president biden in the 2012 campaign. the claim, though not the first we have heard of it, comes in a new book. fox news media analyst howaurd curts tells us who was next in line. >> a new book monday which happened to be obtained by the times and then the post, said white house officials considered replacing joe biden on the ticket. it's a political eye opener from what we heard in the amateur, which reported the white house put out feelers to see if hillary clinton was interested in taking over the vice president's spot. this latest book now reports that the president's top aides ordered polling and focus groups in late 2011 to determine whether biden should be booted and replaced by clinton. but the idea was dropped after the research found that an obama/clinton ticket wouldn't do much to boost the president's chances. bill daley, who was then the white house chief of staff, told the "new york times" it was due diligence to at least
of obamacare despite, despite the president's promises. according to news reports, the obama administration knew for at least three years that millions, millions of americans would not be taoeubl keep their health -- able to keep their health coverage. the president's press secretary basically admitted that americans would lose coverage too. this is the same president who said -- and i quote -- "if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what." that is what the president said. this is one of the many reasons americans feel betrayed. one woman quoted in "the los angeles times" put it this way -- this is what she said -- "all we've been hearing for the last three years is if you like your policy, you can keep it. i'm infuriated because i was lied to." here's how one north carolinian put it to nbc news: "everybody's worried about whether the web site works or not, but that's fixable. that's just the tip of the iceberg. this stuff isn't fixable." that was after he lost a $228 a month plan and was faced with a choi
that the obama administration and obama campaign could realize that the former president is a huge asset for them and perhaps they better make sure that they're working with him and communicating with him. but i think the biggest tidbit everybody is talking about is obviously this switch between hillary clinton and joe biden. but also what i want to know is what's in there about governor chris christie particularly some of the things in his background back when he was working as an sec lobbyist. and a think all of those details will be out shortly and you can no doubt bet people will be looking for clues for the potential gop frontrunner for 2016. >> the book said he did not choose chris christie because he had too many political land mines. so what might be some of the problems he faces if he chooses to run in 2016. >> what's also interesting is that the christie spokesperson put out a statement actually saying that he was very forthcoming with the romney campaign, so they actually issued a response. i think that there are going to be tons of questions everyone's vetted for 2016 as you go throug
are leaking to the press. remember the rumors the obama administration was thinking of booting vice president biden off the ticket for hillary clinton. >> that's crazy news chatter. >> joe, you heard from insiders about this. everybody poo-pooed you. >> said it early on. people were talking about it in '11. i heard from insiders. we talked about it on this show. everybody laughed. >> well, it turns out, when you say it, yeah. it turns out -- it turns out, oba obama's chief of staff at the time, was actively pushing the idea. his quote, i was vocal about looking into a bunch of things. this was one of them. you have to remember, at that point, the president was in awful shape. so, we were like holy christ, what do we do. fortunately for vice president biden, research suggested the move wasn't going to help the president's chances. i wonder why? >> hillary clinton's approval rating is down to 46% right now, i saw. hillary clinton -- >> this is interesting. >> i have great admiration for her. >> i do, too. i think she's going to run. >> benghazi is a serious, it's a lot more difficult for her to
of ever advocated it being permanent and i don't even think the obama administration is seeking to make it permanent. but also i think it's very important that you can't talk about the safety net one program in isolation. we have over 80 different programs providing cash food housing and medical care to poor people. doesn't include social security and medicare. we spend close to a trillion dollars a year. that's about $10,000 for each low income american. this constitutes a cut of about of about one half of 1%. >> brown: are you suggesting people will not feel this right away? >> i'm suggesting very few people get food stamps alone and therefore you have to look at the overall package of assistance that they get which is closer to $27,000 to $30,000 a year. in that context this type of restraint is less alarming than if you just look at food stamps alone. very few families get food stamps alone. >> we are now talking about $1.40 per person per meal. and whereas the snap allotment could have lasted for three weeks because of this reduction in a household's monthly expenditure for food, e

the house force the obama administration to release updated numbers? >> well, i think that the administration has said all along they'll do a month's worth of data at a time. i think the important thing here, alex, is to understand that when we rolled out medicare part d when massachusetts did its health care, universal health care system, they had similar delays. there were peaks that april came well into the open enrollment and certainly part did was not without its bugs in the system. the idea is not to point a finger of blame but extend a hand of help on behalf of congress. let's get together and get this thing running. people want to embrace the benefits of the act. i hear it more and more. look, i've been asked to vote 46, 47 times over to repeal the affordable care act by the republican majority in our house. they have wanted to destroy this opportunity for our americans to have health care benefits since its inception. and it's time to really get to work and get the system running. >> representative tomko, is there an educated guess as to what the numbers may b
and that contrasted with the obama administration's reports of more than 6 million unique -- that's a big -- >> i understand why they don't want to give out the numbers. >> the health and human services department has said it won't release enrollment figures until mid november. >> they're probably better off that way. >> that's what sebelius said. >> mid november, i'd do -- >> jan 1? >> yeah. mid 2015 and see what happens. >>> we have other news, president obama has reportly ordered the nsa to stop eavesdropping on joe kernen. no, stop eaves dropping on the headquarters of the imf and world bank. the order is said to be the latest move, of course, by the white house to demonstrate its willingness to curb at least some surveillance in the wake of weeks by former nsa contractor edward snowden. >>> a number of comments about janet yellen starting to come from the senate. richard shelby says he would oppose efforts to block her nomination with a filibuster unless some disturbing disclosure emerge. his comments come after senator rand paul said he instead to withhold her nomination. and senator lindsa

might think. also this morning, data the obama administration would rather not see in the bank. six. not 60 or 600 or 6,000. just six. that's the number of people who apparently successfully enrolled via healthcare.gov on the first day it went live. you know what they say. the road to hell is paved with good intentions. left over halloween imagery for you there. a deep dive to the effort to fix campaign cash laws that set washington on a course for dysfunction. good morning. it's friday, november 1st. i'm always thinking about another race ahead and another contest. at 1600. let's start with the first reads of the morning. we will talk weekly round up of all things. hillary clinton is not exactly hunkering down and keeping a low profile. in case you missed it, she has an aggressive fall schedule. as impressive as any potential presidential candidate. over the last ten days, a flurry of speeches and fund-raisers has taken her from buffalo new york to chicago to beverly hills. this afternoon, pennsylvania. she key notes the conference for women in philadelphia. it ends a week where we
disaster for the obama administration both in terms of image and impact, all for the very simple reason the website has not worked. the driving principle behind the site is to acquaint uninsured americans with the various health insurance plans available to them to entice them to sign up for what is the signature legislative achieve. of this president. if the success of that plan depends on getting young people to sign up, young and healthy people to buy into this system, expand the poll to offset the cost of older americans, all that is true, it is critically important that the main vehicle actually works. just yesterday, darrell issa's house oversight committee released document, that were meeting notes allegedly from the 4.7 million americans who trapped down the site on its opening day, only six people enrolled on an insurance plan on that day. day two according to issa documents, 248 actual enrollments have taken place. the obama administration has not released its own numbers. if they stand, they are incredibly low, low numbers are not all that unusual t. dwrd that most people don
be a downside. it was certainly part of the history of this administration. shows you as a data point, obama let cal family and clinton political family had come so far it was something they were willing to take a look at. they were right it didn't happen. they were right results didn't argue for going forward. make no mistake they looked at it because of the perilous political position the president found him in at that point. >> john, one of the points that's just fascinating you both bring up is the trip the president makes to his hometown chicago he's home, makes a rare trip to his house. get you to respond. now alone in his old house for just the third night since he had become president he started rummaging through boxes, digging, digging until suddenly he found it. a small nour plan panel paper booklet the world had never seen before. on the front gynecological hospital, in honolulu. on the back was a picture of a hawaiian queen on the inside page were his name, his mother's name and his date of birth. does it suggest the birther controversy was weighing on him more than he ever let on, m
care nationwide by the end of day two according to an internal obama administration memo obtained by that oversight committee. adding to the list of white house whos is the fact that the vast majority of those signing up on state exchanges are signing up for medicaid while a much smaller number are signing up for private insurance, the administration says it will release official enrollment numbers in mid november, but, if the numbers are as bad as these reports suggest, what will the president do? joining me now to react from washington, d.c., democrat strategist julian epstein. julian, six? you couldn't make this up. if i had said six, they would call me crazy, racist, who know what is they would call me. six. >> i'm the first to acknowledge that there have been a lot of problems with the rollout. the administration put out a figure october 2 ath where they had about 700,000 people sign up or express interest in signing up for the program. i think the question that you are getting to, eric, is the right question, will they get a sufficient number of people in to sign up, in to t
